3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black, with a small, creamy light tan head. Smells of mild roast, creamy chocolate, and dark malts. Get some dark fruits in there too. The flavor is medium-bodied, good dose of creamy chocolate, some dark fruit, and a larger malt presence. The roast really isnt hat noticeable in the in the flavor, but it seems to be pretty balanced. Has kind of a nutty flavor in the aftertaste, which turns into chocolate. Not bad.
